City transfers from the airport are rapid, with both taxi and train journeys into the city taking around 10 minutes from Malaga–Costa del Sol Airport (AGP).
To travel by train, simply walk to Malaga Airport Train Station from arrivals, buy a ticket, and hop on the Malaga Cercanias (Local Malaga Line). This can take you as far south as Fuengirola.
You can also pre-book airport shuttle services for drop-offs in Malaga or other resort destinations on the Costa del Sol.
Once you’ve settled into your city hotel you’ll realise that Malaga is a place for walkers.
The city offers up its best rewards to those who pound the pavement and once you’re in the heart of Malaga itself, you’re unlikely to need a car. Malaga is small and compact, with the narrow winding streets of the Old Town easily covered by foot (or wheels, if you must).
Public transport in Malaga will get you almost everywhere you’re likely to want to go within town, and it’s easy to hop on a bus if you want to head to one of the 15 urban beaches. Buses circulate around the harbour front and along the main arterial routes, and taxis are plentiful.
The city is also embracing the cycling revolution, with more cycle paths being built to encourage biking around the city. One popular path snakes along the waterfront at La Malagueta beach. It’s a great way to cover more ground cheaply and with green credentials while seeing the sights.
Forays outside of Malaga and trips to coastal hideaways are so much easier when you rent a car. Find out everything you need to know on our Malaga car hire page.
